Tribunal Finds Threat of Injury—Hot-rolled Carbon Steel Plate from Brazil, Denmark, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, and South Korea

Ottawa, Ontario, May 20, 2014

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today found that the dumping of hot-rolled carbon steel plate, originating in or exported from the Federative Republic of Brazil, the Kingdom of Denmark, the Republic of Indonesia, the Italian Republic, Japan, and the Republic of Korea has not caused but is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping duties will therefore be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency. The complainant in this case was Essar Steel Algoma Inc. of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its finding on June 4, 2014.

The Tribunal is an independent quasi-judicial body that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance. It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, safeguard complaints, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.
